Intro: Microwave Omelette

I absolutely love quick and yummy food especially when it can be made on the relatively cheap side :D (usually less than $2 per cup). I make this multiple times during the week during semester and it is a quick go to before I have to go to early morning classes. It keeps me full for hours and you can make it for breakfast, lunch dinner or even a quick snack.

This is very versatile recipe and you can add or subtract any of the extra ingredients. I never find this recipe boring because i use whatever i have in the fridge like chicken and spinach or ham and cheese the combinations are endless YUM!!!!!!

Serves 1

Step 1: Ingredients and Equipment

Ingredients For Basic Omelette

- 2 large eggs

- 1 1/2 Tablespoon milk

- 1/4 cup Fresh breadcrumbs (white or wholemeal)

- Salt and pepper to taste

Extra Ingredients

- 1 Tablespoon Cheese

- 3 Cherry tomatoes

- 3 Chives

- Any other meat or fillings

Equipment

- 1 Microwaveable mug or ramekin (holds at least 1 cup)

- Chopping board

- Cutting knife

- Small bowl to mix

- 1/4 cup measurement

- Fork for mixing

- Microwave (I used 1100 watt microwave)

Step 2: Prepare the Ingredients

Once you have chosen your desired fillings we need to prepare them.

First crumble the fresh bread until you have 1/4 cup of crumbs. Secondly halve the cherry tomatoes and finely chop the chives. Then cut any other fillings you may want to add. (Ham or chicken goes really well in this!)

Now we are going to mix it all!

Step 3: Prepare the Egg Mixture

Once your fillings are cut and ready crack your eggs into the small bowl and whisk them with the milk until you reach a light and even yellow colour. Add the breadcrumbs, cheese, tomatoes, chives (and any other ingredients) and salt and pepper and mix well.

Step 4: Microwave and Cook Your Omelette

Pour the egg mixture into your ramekin or favorite mug! Just make sure that there is room in the mug on top of the egg mix as it rises when it is heated. If you are worried that it might overflow (it shouldn't) then place a small plate under the mug or ramekin. (mine was pretty close to overflowing because mine was really full)

Cook the omelette on high for 2-3 minutes depending on how well you liked your eggs cooked. (I cooked mine for 2 minutes to start then needed another 30 seconds in a 1100 watt microwave and it was delicious!)

Step 5: Eat and Enjoy :D

Once it is out of the microwave leave it for a few minutes to cool so it does not burn your mouth. I love to make this during semester because it is really quick and easy and I can make it in my microwave in minutes!!

Your instructable taught me a new way to perfect my scrambled eggs as well! Adding milk instead of/as well as cream and boiling that before adding the eggs makes my scrambled eggs so much creamier and faster!

awesome recipe !! Where abouts in Australia do you live? I am Canadian but I back backed Australia for 2 months a while back. I traveled from Carins down to Sydney staying in hostels the entire time. It was such an amazing country I miss it so much. A few of my favourite places were camping on Fraser Island or attempting to surf in Byron Bay. I really enjoyed the party scene in surfers and the amazing wildlife I saw all through out the trip. Anyway Great easy Recipe !! and good job on the win!!

I live in Perth it is so lovely here and very peaceful. Australia at least how I know it is so relaxed and you can make friends so easy here. Canada would be so much fun to visit too!!!

Using bread gives it more of a quiche look. But it is still worth the try. Tomorrow's breakfast!!! Will let you know how mine turned out.

Hi there I have done this with oats before (the chopped quick cooking ones) it is slightly different in consistency but I didn't really notice or you can omit the bread all together. :D I hope this helped

I would probably just omit the breadcrumbs all together and maybe only use 1/2 Tbsp. milk otherwise the eggs might be too runny.

The variations are unending. And it is not beyond my culinary skills.

Despite having enough time for more time consuming breakfast I find this very tempting to try. As a bonus - this doesn't use any oil either!

I've microwaved an egg for a quick sandwich, but never thought of making an omelet! Interesting with the bread. I've never heard that. Sounds great!
